Stayed for 5 nights, unfortunately read reviews after booking. Would have cancelled however would have lost $125.00. Motel definitely not as advertised, tired, old and grubby. Mouldy shower, poor lighting, tatty curtains, dusty, I could go on however where do I stop. Do yourselves a favour and check out alternative accommodation.

The bathroom was a disgrace broken tiles on the floor around the toilet and on the sink with no shelf to put your toiletries on. The electric blanket plug had only one... More

My partner and I stayed here for six nights in october 2014 and were far from satisfied. Not only is this motel vastly different than shown as advertised, but they really need to get their act together with bookings. I will go through some of the negatives and will end with some of the positives. For starters, the rooms are... More

Only stayed here because could not find alternative accommodation in Hobart at very short notice for 7 nights over the long weekend in October - says something about Blue Hills Motel that when rest of Hobart was booked out Blue Hills had vacancies over the long weekend. Would have moved but could not get a refund for accommodation Room old,... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in Sept 2014. The location is good, close to Salamanca Market, 10 min walk to city center, 15 min walk to car rental. That is the ONLY reason that we choose here... About the room: we arrived at 8pm. the owner was very nice and let us choose the room for... More

booked this motel because of its location and because it is advertised as providing a'full breakfast'. We read the mixed reviews, ranging from good to terrible, so this is our experience. Upon arrival, we missed reception being open by 5 minutes, fair enough, but there was no key for us when we rang the number on the front door so... More

I arrived late from airport, so late guests have to climb a set of steep stairs in the dark, no outside lighting, with a message on the door to go to back of motel (sensor light comes on) to collect your room key. Motel is a two storey building with no lift and steep stairs and further climbing to level... More

Have just stayed at this Motel in Room 12. As they say if you pay cheap you get cheap. The room was very basic but had a comfortable bed with electric blanket, a television and a fridge that rumbled and banged like an old washing machine. The bathroom? Well shower room was one with no door therefore, when having a... More

Recently booked and stayed for 7 nights - used the accommodation as a base for day trips. The rooms are acceptable and are reasonable value for the price. The real bonus is the proximity of the Motel to all the major attractions of Hobart, which are all within walking distance. Nearby are great bakeries and restaurants, shopping centres and pubs....
